Tesla pipped to the post - by the Rasa #thisoneforwales

NGC has never presented the Next Gen Award, which recognises the most innovative models close to launch, to a more eligible vehicle. The Rasa is the most efficient 'well-to-wheel' car in the world, combining an ultra-efficient hydrogen fuel cell powertrain with extremely low weight and slippery aerodynamics to achieve the equivalent of 250 MPG. The only emission from the tailpipe is water vapour and the Rasa can travel 300 miles on just 1.5 kg of hydrogen. Electric motors are placed in each of the four wheels to reduce weight and size of the power unit, and the fuel cell car uses super-capacitors rather than a battery to improve the efficiency of regenerative braking. The best thing about the Rasa is that, despite it looking like a manufacturer's concept vehicle, the car will be available to drive in a public trial before a full production run in 2018 - we can't wait!
